Your church in the city

About City Church

What brings us together is a love for Manchester, a love for its people and most importantly a love for Jesus. We want to put him at the centre of all that we do.

We’re committed to teaching the gospel - put simply, the good news about Jesus!

Jesus came into the world to make God known to us. Through his death, we're forgiven of sins and restored to the relationship with God we're made for. This is incredible news – the best anyone could hear. So we want to share it with all – in Manchester, the Northwest and beyond!

Vision & Values
Gospel Driven

We believe the gospel is the way into the Christian life and the way forward in the Christian life. We therefore want the gospel to drive everything we do and shape the way we do it.

in service

Our hope is that everyone involved in the church serves to the best of their ability, so as to glorify God. We desire to have a culture not of perfectionism, but of excellence in all things; driven by an enjoyment of God who has given His best for us.


We want the reconciling power of Jesus to be demonstrated through gathering people from across our city. We are committed to being an accessible community for all.


We stand in the reformed tradition and delight in God’s sovereignty, the power and authority of the preached Word, and the expectation that the Gospel will impact and transform our communities.

We love to learn. Equip is our platform to train, grow and be challenged as a community to respond more quickly to our cultural shifts.


Want to get deeper in relationships with others? Want to grow in faith and trust in Jesus? We believe life is best done in community.


We love our young people and want to help them grow into the people God has made them to be, equipped to face the challenges ahead of them.


We do believe the church should help with teaching and training kids. But, actually, most of our help for parents and carers is done through relationships.


We love students. We want to help you belong to a community, figure out what to believe and become who God made you to be.
